This Wednesday, Beekeeper will host a webinar discussing how to prepare for and handle a crisis, from connecting your employees to communicating effectively. Moderator Andrada Paraschiv, Beekeeper head of hospitality and former executive director of communications and strategy of FRHI Hotels and Resorts, will lead Christy Shapard, VP of human resources for North Point Hospitality, and Heather Goins, human resources information systems analyst for InTown Suites, in a best practices discussion about communicating and connecting within your organization during COVID-19.

“Due to this pandemic, hotels are closing, employees are staying home and there is no way of keeping in touch with them; for the hotels continuing operations, policy and process changes have to be communicated asap,” Paraschiv said in a statement. “When things begin to improve it’s especially important to be able to communicate reopening and return-to-work plans. As the No. 1 communications tool for hospitality, Beekeeper is providing relevant and consistent information from the hotel to its team members in real time, and it’s this type of communication that Christy and Heather are eager to talk about during this webinar.

Beekeeper is extending the free trial period of Beekeeper for hotels from 14 days to the end of June so hoteliers can effectively reach their employees when it matters most, she said.
